A Thank-You Note To God

Dear God,

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for helping Molly through her tonsil and adenoidectomies. At post-op day two, she is already breathing better and can truly tell that the surgery is making a difference.

Your timing was impeccable as usual as her two week recoup time is the exact amount of time she needed off before heading back to camp for counseling "C" session. We didn't even know she was going to be asked to come back for the last session due to the extra-large enrollment but, of course, You did. I know we struggled a bit in the more faith/less worry department as You worked out all of the details and I just wanted to make sure you knew how awesome Your plan and timing is. I guess panicking and beating myself up because I hesitated for a day to schedule the actual surgery wasn't necessary after all. But when Dr. Brinkman's office said they no longer had a Friday the 16th appointment available, I assumed that my hesitation cost her the friday slot. As it turns out, Dr. Brinkman's son is going to state for the little league baseball tournament and he is not doing any surgery on that day. If she did happen to have her surgery that day, she would not have been able to return to Hollymont for the C session when they asked her just last week. I love how you know best always!!!

Well, again, thank you so much for Your love, mercy and kindness to me and my family. You never cease to amaze me in any area!

Love ya, Dana
p.s. Thanks also for working out my flight home from Florida and for orchestrating Molly and her dad and Becky moving her bedroom furniture into her Nashville house. Again, brilliant!!

Psalm 69:29-31 – I am in pain and distress;
may your salvation, O God, protect me. I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hoofs.
